AVIATOR II

How do you improve on perfection? Originally built for the U.S. military, our flagship military-spec Aviator is modified to include a sweat bar for added comfort and a distinguished look.

Our flagship Aviator has been standard-issue to the U.S. military since 1982. With careful attention to detail, from unique bayonet temples designed to fit comfortably under headgear to stay-snug screws, it has set the standard for world-class quality. Battle tested and suitable for the most demanding situations (or just to lie on the beach), our Aviator is worn by U.S. military pilots, tastemakers, and those who demand the best.

  • 23k gold and other premium-quality finishes for durability & scratch resistance
  • Lifetime warranty on all frames
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Handcrafted in the USA in 200+ steps
  • Available in signature bayonet or standard temples
  • Military-issued since 1978
  • Self-adjusting cushioned nose pads
  • Includes leather case and cleaning cloth pouch

Aviator II in Bright Chrome with AGX Glass Lenses

Built To Military Standards

We wanted to make a difference. Leave a mark. Be proud of something. So in 1978, we joined forces with the U.S. military to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots. Each Aviator is built to strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948 standards, a 20-page document detailing the most complex manufacturing specs around.

Guaranteed for a lifetime. Or two.

Built to a higher standard using the world’s finest materials, we stand by each pair of frames we make. So much so, that we offer a lifetime warranty. Take them with you around the world, and back again.

23K Gold and Other Premium Metals

The same precious metal finishes found on the world’s finest timepieces are layered on at up to 5x the industry standard.

Handmade and Detail-Driven

It takes our craftspeople over 6 weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses.
More than 200 steps go into making each frame—and most of these steps? –

Done by hand.

Metal Bending

Hand-cut and bent to flawlessly form each component.

Soldering

The bridge, hinges and other components are soldered by hand.

Tumbling

Porcelain and ceramic granules polish each frame to absolute perfection.

Signature Bayonet Temples Fit for Pilots,
Designed for Total Comfort

Our Iconic Bayonet temples were designed to slide easily under pilot headsets, helmets and other headgear. Which means pure comfort and ease. We also calculate the exact angle of the bend on the Skull temple to prevent headaches that may sometimes occur from undue temple pressure.

TRANSPORT IN STYLE

All frames come with a leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth that doubles as a pouch.

    This is the sixth pair of sunglasses that I have purchased from you.

    My husband is mad for these glasses.
    In a world where quality has all but disappeared….it's a joy to deal with you.

  10. 4 out of 5 Nice Sunglasses

    So far I am very pleased with these sunglasses. I had an original pair years ago and these are essentially the same. They came with a very nice case and a cleaning cloth with a fighter jet silk-screen (nice touch). i'm very happy with these. One suggested small improvement would be to make the arms spring-loaded like so many of the newer sunglasses are.

    I originally ordered the Corsair in Antique Bronze and returned them since the color didn't match what I saw in the picture. Then I went to Fashion and Quality Optics in Philadelphia and had the Aviator 2 ordered in Gunmetal with Gray Polorized glass lens. While I wasn't satisfied with the color of the Corsair, they were an improvement over my previous sunglasses. The Aviator 2 however is a step up over the Corsair. The Gunmetal color matched with the Aviator 2 styling catches the eye without being flashy. They have an expensive look and feel with the glass lens and are comfortable to wear. These are the best sunglasses I ever had. Highly recommended.

  14. 5 out of 5 Love em!

    I ordered these after reading numerous reviews. They are exactly as described in those reviews – solidly constructed, great lenses that protect the eyes, and damn good looking. They are not cheap, but great things rarely are.

    Love em!
